This past weekend, families gathered at Campion Academy for senior recognition weekend. Friday night, the seniors marched down the aisle of the Campion Church. Teachers and staff members spoke about each student, moments they have shared, and the footprint each has left on the campus.
“I think it’s a special time for the students to feel recognized by the staff,” Erin Johnson says. “Even though it’s nerve racking, it’s still important to show the impact they’ve made on our lives.”
Many students were honored and touched by the ceremony, even shedding a few tears. “I felt really special, I didn’t realize Dean Santana would talk about me, but it meant so much that she did,” Sandra Arlt, senior, comments.
On Sabbath morning, seniors led out in the church service. From the praise team to the morning prayer, the students shared their talents and eagerness to serve. “I loved participating in the service, especially with doing the children’s story,” Brie Bell, senior, reflected. “My favorite part was interacting with the children and hearing their answers to my questions.”
Senior recognition weekend was the first event to honor the class of 2022 as they approach graduation in May.
